FirstLight Home Care Makes Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® List

CINCINATTI, Ohio. (January 12, 2017) – FirstLight Home Care, a national provider of non-medical home care, was recently named to Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500 list®. The company jumped 376 spots from last year’s ranking of 436, to No. 60 in 2017.

FirstLight Home Care distinguishes itself from other industry brands by offering assistance to a wide demographic of adults in need. The company assists seniors; new mothers; veterans; adults with disabilities; and those recovering from illness, injury or surgery who need help on short-term or long-term basis.

“Improving our ranking by 376 spots is something we are extremely proud of,” said Jeff Bevis, FirstLight Home Care chief executive officer. “Our company has grown by more than 183 percent in the last three years, and when you consider that we have only been franchising since 2010, that expansion is even more impressive. We are dedicated to finding the most passionate franchisees to help us continue to make a difference in the lives of our clients and their families.”
